JerseyGyrl's responses are always very well put, but I wanna share a little bit of my experience:
I eat one or two pieces of gum per day. I feel that my oral hygene isn't good enough without them and I always buy gum that has at least 30% xylitol becouse of the oral health benefits.
I count 1 g of carb and 2 calories per piece.
It does not stall my weight loss so far.
I agree too. I use gum as a breath freshener for work, even tho I don't like to chew it. I usually spit it out in about a minute. BUT, the carbs are important.
If I don't count them I don't lose. I find it makes a big difference. I used to think that one carb was just there because they had to say there is one, I figured it was maybe a 10th of a carb or something. BUt did find it makes a difference on weeks when I have been working a lot a needing the gum.

Thanks alot. I am a fresh breath kind of person also, Fresh breath is priority (ha ha)
anyway my husband told me I had bad breath, he very kindly put it ( it must be your new diet because you have always had the sweetest breath.
Anyway Scope is not helping ( may have to try gum).
